Final Poster Project
Peaceful Creek; 5/12/12, 9:56:48 AM; Near Mesa Falls, Id; f/11; Shutter 1/125; NIKON D5100
I took this picture while I was driving around Mesa Falls area with my roommate. We were on a bridge, and I loved how blue the creek was against the green. Because the sky was so blue then, it was reflecting in the water, so all the ponds, creeks, and puddles were really blue that day. The colors were already so bright that I didn’t add vibrancy or saturation, but in camera raw, add a levels layer which brought the colors out even more. Then I added clarity because the grass was blending together. I also used the recovery function bring out even more contrast and detail to the picture. Then I went into photoshop and removed a few little things that were distracting and didn’t belong.
